Jay Jeffers, DO

Hometown: Tulsa, OK

Career Goals: Hospitalist for now but still undecided

Why UNM: I did a Sub-I here and loved it! I was given responsibility and treated like a member of the team. The residents and attendings were always willing to teach and give feedback which has remained true in my short time as a resident.

Also @Brittneyletourneau is here along with the number 1 ranked therapy dog team in the nation :)

Favorite Things About UNM: UNM provides a unique opportunity to learn from a high volume of patients with very diverse pathology which has pushed me and will prepare me for life after residency. I feel challenged but never alone. The support system is great and I always feel like I can ask for help if I need it.

Favorite Things About NM: Playing for the Jalapeno Poppers in the First Annual "Crystal Avila Champions of the Mountain UNM Residents/Faculty Kickball League"
